Case of former Mexican soldier who filed for asylum, based on the fact that he had been approached by Narco-traffickers who needed his military training to help them in illegal criminal activity. As he refused to cooperate, he categorized him into a Particular Social Group (PSG) of “former Mexican soldier who was threatened to aid cartels based on his training.” The Immigration Judge found the category to be viable and found the threats to his life significant to grant him asylum from Mexico.
